Today was the hardest day I’ve had yet. I was in a bad mood all day and constantly questioned why I was doing this. I started the day with 2 scrambled eggs in ghee with zucchini and basil and half a roasted sweet potato. It was my first time cooking with ghee and it was very good. Then we headed to a dog wash fundraiser for the greyhounds. This went until 3 pm. So by the time we were finished we were starving!!! We went to Panera Bread. It was my first time eating out and it was HARD. I felt very out of control and then mad that I’m so stressed about something I chose to do. I printed out the hidden menu before I left, so I had that handy. I got the Power Mediterranean Chicken salad without bacon. It was ok. Not something I’d want again, but it made my stomach quit growling. Then for dinner, a big group of us ate at a Greek restaurant for Father’s Day. There was not much on the menu for me. I got a salad, no cheese, oil and vinegar. And a hamburger steak with grilled onion, bell pepper and jalapeno. It was very dry and bland (other than the heat from the jalapeno), but oh well. Then we all went out for ice cream while I watched everyone eat. On the way home I was just kind of confused and mad. I felt like I stood out tonight and I’m too much of an introvert to stand out. But then something happened that reminded me of why I’m doing this. My husband was miserable after eating all that food. And me? Well, I feel fine! No bloated, over full feeling for me! I also discovered a very yummy snack tonight. I know we aren’t supposed to snack on Whole 30, but I think tonight I needed something. Unsweetened coconut chips, browned in a skillet. Then sprinkle it with cinnamon and salt. YUM! Kind of like kettle corn.
Okay, here’s to hoping tomorrow is better. At least I made it through another day.
